COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose IPA is a physical salute to the glory of the American hop grower. The citrusy hop flavor coming from a mixture of Simcoe and Santiams is pleasantly balanced by a smooth bitterness from the Amarillo hops. The beer itself is light bodied and crisp with a golden color that will throw a slight haze, as we bottle it unfiltered. At 65 IBU’s, this is definitely not a training-wheels IPA, but is meant for hop lovers looking to satisfy their craving in a way that’s not easy to find. We think they’ll be quite pleased.

Golden and cloudy appearance. Strong citrus aroma. Fizzy feel. the flavor starts off like citrus than turns to pine. the aftertaste leaves a great impression with a bitter bite. Highly recommended.

Bottle. Golden amber pour, decent-sized head. Citrusy hop aroma with some caramel malts in there, and a touch of some other sweet light fruit, maybe orange. Similar hoppy flavors, with a bit better balance on sweet toasty malt. A touch of earthiness (I think maybe from the hops) gives it a nice extra dimension - dunno if the earthiness was there intentionally, but I liked it. Bitter finish. Good IPA.

Amber colored with a rocky off-white head. Lots of citrus in the nose, coupled with a subtle fruitiness (apricots), and a biscuity malt character. Juicy, floral hops hit the palate immediately, but are quickly tempered with light toasty, biscuity character paired with a subtle caramel sweetness. One of the best IPAs I have had.

This is a phenomenal IPA. Great aroma and very distinct taste. Stands out among IPAs.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 Pours a light amber color with moderate head. Smells if citrus hops with a bit of grass and lemon zest. Taste is of citrus, pine, a hint of lemon, and malt to balance this baby out. This is a terrific IPA, one of the best I’ve head. It’s very drinkable and has an overall great mouthfeel.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2006
This beer offers a hearty hops aroma that has a boiled corn fragrance in the background. It is a translucent maize colored solution with a thin white head. The hops are defiantly present in the taste. This beer has a bitter disposition from introduction to exit. Behind the bitter, there is a sweet taste of clove and honey. The throat is left with a strong bitter aftertaste lingering.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Illinismitty. Poured a murky golden color with a nice foamy white head that left some lacing. Great hop aroma with lots of citrus in the nose. Lots of crisp, bitter citrus hops in the flavor. Long lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. A good IPA.

outerupt (133) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2006
12oz. bottle. Not one of my favorites. The hop element is decidedly herbacious, matching the vigorous patch of grass featured on the label. The beer pours a lovely rich golden color but the initial pour is chased by a MASSIVE amount of sediment that is quite bitter and fairly unpleasant. I like unfiltered beers but this is just overkill. The beer becomes almost chewy at the end of the glass and has a funk with the slightest suggestion of bacteria.

This IPA from Smuttynose ranks with some of the best we’ve had. Pours a light amber color with virtually no head. Aroma’s of strong hops with grapefruit and lemon notes. Initial flavor is heavy bitter, finishing moderately bitter. Fizzy carbonation on the mouth. Excellent.
